crafting with grandma . . . a Wealth of Easter Ideas!

As I browsed on Pinterest the other day i found a link to 40 Ideas for Easter . . . there are so many wonderful craft ideas on this link, so I decided to highlight just a few of my favorites!

Get Cozy
    how to make an Easter basket from a recycled soda bottle
  1. I love the idea for making your own side-walk chalk! All you need is some plaster of Paris, powered tempura paints, water and silicone molds! This is one I will absolutely have to try for Josiah!
  2. The recycled Easter Egg Basket made from 2-liter soda bottles is great fun . . . we don't drink soda, so this is one I will have to keep in mind for next year as it may take me this long to get a couple 2-liter bottles!   Super easy, super inexpensive and super fun!
  3. The Egg Cozies made from baby socks are just too cute! I think I'd also   plan to have a few additional supplies on hand - stuffing, needle and tread   and then after eggs were found and eaten, you could involve your grandkids in turning their cozies into little stuffed "friends"! You could use beans instead of stuffing and make them into little bean bags, too! Cute   and fun!
These are just three of the wonderful ideas you'll find at this link! Which one is your favorite? Do you think you'll be making any of these fun Easter crafts?
